The accolades keep rolling in for members of the 2008 Jefferson Forest football team.
The latest honors were bestowed on Josh Storm and Dustin Engledove.
Storm, a senior for the Cavs, was selected to the All-State AA first team as its placekicker.
Engledove, also a senior, was chosen to the second team as a tight end.
Storm became one of the Cavs’ most potent and reliable offensive weapons via his lively foot.
As a result, Storm (5’10”, 145 pounds) was selected to the first team All-Seminole team as both a placekicker and as a punter.
He also received recognition as the second team selectee for the All-Region III team.
Storm also was awarded the top special teams player award by his team.
Engledove took advantage of the Cavs’ excellent conditioning program over the past year to add 20 pounds to his 6’4” frame.
With 260 pounds of muscle lining up at tight end, the Cav offensive ground game was often keyed from Engledove’s position. For his fine line play, Engledove was awarded the Jake Grove award by his team.
While JF did not rely as much on the passing game, Engledove’s soft hands and ability to rumble with the catch made him an instrumental part of it.
Storm is reportedly being looked at by a number of colleges that could use his big leg.
Engledove has given verbal commitment to Richmond, which won the FCS national title earlier this month.
Cav Brown to big game
One Forest player will be ringing in the new year Texas-style.
Cav defensive end Andrew Brown has been selected to participate in the US Army High School All-American Bowl Game in San Antonio, TX from Jan.1 through 3.
Brown, a 6’1” 215 pounder, will be participating in the Underclassman Combine and will get to watch the seniors play in the All-Star Game.
Brown helped to key the Cavs’ stingy defense this year and, for his efforts, he was selected to the first-team All-Seminole defensive unit.
He also received honorable mention on the All-Region III defensive team.
The All-American Bowl Game, which will feature Brookville’s Logan Thomas, will be shown on NBC, Jan. 3 at noon.
